Beast From The East

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff - Mal­colm dome

Beast From The East was the fi­nal al­bum from the clas­sic Dokken era, be­fore the band split up in 1989. Recorded in Tokyo on the Back For The At­tack tour the pre­vi­ous year, the band are in full flight as they storm through their best songs in a fer­vent per­for­mance.

This reis­sue is the en­tire gig re­stored, as op­posed to other ver­sions with a few songs miss­ing, so in ad­di­tion to the orig­i­nal track­list you get Un­chain The Night, Dream War­riors, In My Dreams and Break­ing The Chains among many in­spir­ing mo­ments. It shows those four in the best pos­si­ble light, with Don Dokken in great voice and Ge­orge Lynch de­liv­er­ing some thun­der­ous gui­tar.

There’s also the stu­dio record­ing Walk Away, which un­der­lines how Dokken still had a magic melodic touch. Add new and re­veal­ing sleeve notes, based on a in­ter­view with Don, and you’ve got a fine pack­age of late-80s Dokken revelry.

Rocken with Dokken – to the max.
